To My Quarantined Love

“Sweet friendships refresh the soul and awaken our hearts with joy, for good friends are like the anointing oil that yields the fragrant incense of God’s presence.”

Proverbs‬ ‭27:9‬ ‭TPT‬‬

If the whole earth is a bubble

I would have burst it just to bring you out

Of its sphere of limitations

So you can blossom 

Just like the lilies of the field

And flourish as the Cedar of Lebanon

For you are a golden seed from God

A complex yet delicate lily amidst thorns

The fragrance of hope in the pandemic.

“Many will say they are loyal friends, but who can find one who is truly reliable?”

‭‭P‭Proverbs‬ ‭20:6‬ ‭NLT‬‬

If we had met before the lockdown

We would have been locked-up forever

But now I can’t even tell

Where you are quarantined at

Yet our connection is stronger than 

The highly debated or supposedly menacing 5G

And so I am looking forward

To the end of this virus-induced house arrest

So we can come together again

“I pray that the light of God will illuminate the eyes of your imagination, flooding you with light, until you experience the full revelation of the hope of his calling—that is, the wealth of God’s glorious inheritances that he finds in us, his holy ones!”

‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭1:18‬ ‭TPT‬‬

To talk about things that 

Makes no sense to anyone and everyone else

But matter most to us

I hope the many voices around you 

Will give you the freedom to read this, my Lily

May God free you from the lack of conviction

And hopelessness spreading all-over the world

I look forward to seeing you soon

Remain safe and hopeful, Lily!

“The LORD says, “Forget what happened before, and do not think about the past. Look at the new thing I am going to do. It is already happening. Don’t you see it? I will make a road in the desert and rivers in the dry land.”

Isaiah‬ ‭43:18-19‬ ‭NCV‬‬

And thank you for giving brightness to the sky

You mean a world to we mean world

The thought of you twinkles many ears

But I don’t wonder who you are

For you’re an embodiment of grace and glory 

I am privileged and grateful to have you 

Looking forward to the day when Mark 10 moves from 7-9

Yesterday has lost you forever

The future is smiling at us now.

  1. This is probably my favorite poem of yours.
    I can see themes of friendship and love, longing but yet patient enough to wait.
